THIBODAUX, La. (AP) Tracy James crashed in for the winning score as Abilene Christian won its second overtime game this season, slipping past Nicholls 37-31 on Saturday.

Nicholls had possession first in the extra period but Jairan Parker stripped Kendall Bussey of the ball and Brandon Richmond pounced on it on the second play of OT. Abilene Christian (5-4, 4-3 Southland Conference) moved to the 5 in four plays and James took it in for the win.

The Wildcats got past Stephen F. Austin 31-24 in double overtime last week.

ACU, which recorded its first road win of the season, took the lead 17-14 when James bulled in from the 1 as time expired in the first half.

The Wildcats were ahead 31-21 going into the final quarter. Chase Fourcade scored from the 1 and Gunnar Jones booted a 19-yard field goal with 1:53 remaining to tie the score and send it to overtime.

Nicholls (4-4, 3-2) lost three fumbles and Fourcade was intercepted once. ACU's Luke Anthony was picked off twice.

Sema'J Davis rushed for two touchdowns and 146 yards and James finished with 75 yards and two scores for the Wildcats. Anthony threw for 181 yards and one TD.

Fourcade threw for 216 yards and a score and rushed for 64 yards and another score.
